Thank you to everyone who came out to The Woods in support of our Seasons of hiving Holiday Sale! We hope you will enjoy the holiday treasures you purchased and we are certain that, through your generous support, many children will discover nature at summer camp next season!
On December 2nd and 3rd, Baltimore Woods Nature Center held a special holiday fundraiser featuring an extensive, private collection of unique ornaments and holiday décor. Shoppers who purchased items at this one-of-a-kind holiday sale have helped to extend the season of giving. Their holidays will be enriched with festive decorations that have been shared forward to their homes, but more importantly, a child will discover the wonders of nature next season at summer camp through your support. All proceeds from this event directly supported the Baltimore Woods Camp Scholarship Fund.
The purpose of the Camp Scholarship Fund is to give every child, regardless of ethnic, social, or economic backgrounds, the opportunity to discover the wonder of nature at our summer camps. We believe that time spent in nature is important for children in their understanding and respect of the natural world. They can develop this relationship through experiences of outdoor adventure and exploration at the camps. This direct contact with the natural world with instructors and peers will allow children to develop problem-solving skills, social interaction skills and to build a new community of friends. The experiences the have at camp will last a lifetime.
